    This is a follow on from a previous thread:

    If anyone is interested I will share the xar and text files so you can use this method. Let me know

    I don't know what I would use it for egg, but I find it very interesting! I know there are lots of things like java script I wish I knew but it is so hard to teach old dogs like me new tricks, but will be looking for future videos on the subject if anyone else wants them. Thanks Egg!!!!

    Sorry Egg, I have no mp3's on my site. I know yourself, Acorn, Gary and a few others are old pro's, me I just have one website and am a amateur who just enjoys what I can accomplish in my simple way with xara.

    Two of my sites are predominantly mp3's. Is there something you want/need, or just being curious?

    @Egg, I can see how this could be used to display any text data records - interesting approach. It means a user can edit the text file externally from the site.

    Can you please share the javascript, how it is structured and what goes where. I think you can add a search function too.

    Thanks,

    Gary

    That's very useful, Egg, when having to present a lot of different data, for instance on a map with lots of points of interest.

    Would have been very useful for a site I did a few years ago showing a landscape and playground design with different types of greenery and installations. I had to use many layers and got confused a number of times.

    Info Re: An alternative to using multiple pop-up layers

    Sorry Egg, I have a disagreement over the approach and the code that we have discussed previously.

    The Xara way to avoid lots of Layers is to shift the berthing or other data collection onto its own page and potentially have these or even each in its own Xara design file.

    My simple demonstrator has:
    • The index page with an Embed a Website widget - this has a Name of marina and a src (source) to a Xara page by its filename and htm extension (marina.htm).
    • Normal berthing pages that can handle any Xara Objects. These are scaled to match the index's Placeholder.
    • The berth links on the index page are pure Page Links but with the Open in link (destination) of the Name 'marina' directly in the input box. This opens the page in the Placeholder.

    That's it.

    If you needed to only update the berth information I would publish berth001, etc as separate design files into the same folder (publishing as berth001.htm).

    This way, all work is in the XDA with no code or hidden tables.
